ESL Newsletters

…The #elt Daily , shown below, is not just for teachers…DIY/SRL learners too. DIY = Do It Yourself. SRL = Self Regulated Learning. Developing your own collection of learning materials is part of taking responsibility for your own learning and becoming an independent learner. ESL newsletters are one source. Subscribe to newsletters about learning English and others on topics that interest you (in English, of course).

In The #esl Daily the focus in more on learners. Both can be used by classroom teachers and independent learners.

You can also create your own newsletter. Sadamu, for example, might set up his personal to look for links about current events, his home town, playing bridge and the ocarina, and ESL speaking practice.

  • Subscribe to blogs and feeds (less reliable than a feed reader)
